Inspector General updates

The Wall Street Journal has an editorial calling on President Obama to either respect the law regarding inspector generals or get rid of the office altogether.

Byron York has some more on the Gerald Walpin firing. It appears the bipartisan backing for his sacking was due to the fact that both sides didn't want Walpin pointing out fraud and corruption just as they were getting a big infusion of patronage money to distribute.

And it's not just Walpin over at AmeriCorps that was targeted, Moe Lane points out that it appears as though the Amtrak inspector general ran into similar meddling and "retired" rather quickly.

How many IGs do you need to sack before it becomes a trend that someone other than the Washington Examiner is interested in pursuing?
